Egypt: Its On Like Donkey Kong

20 Million people protesting? Why in America you couldn't get 20 million to protest the devil himself.

al Arabia:

...the political wing of Egypt's ruling Muslim Brotherhood refused an invitation to meet the armed forces commander, military and party sources said.

"We do not go to invitations (meetings) with anyone. We have a president and that is it," said Waleed al-Haddad, a senior leader of the Freedom and Justice Party told Reuters.

In a statement that was headlined “The Final hours,” Egypt’s high command said on Wednesday that the army was ready to sacrifice blood to defend the Egyptian people against “terrorists or fools” as the death toll mounted in protester clashes.
The post on the official Facebook page of the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces (SCAF), headed by armed forces chief General Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, said: "We swear to God that we will sacrifice even our blood for Egypt and its people, to defend them against any terrorist, radical or fool."

So how do you know that the Arab spring has been a success? When, like America, most people just have too much to do to waste time protesting.

Update: The Egyptian military has taken control of the State TV stations.

Update II : President Morsi has been placed under house arrest by Egyptian Military.
